More a first impression than a full review.

I've ridden them in the past and the highbacks on these are a bit softer than in last years. I really think it's for the better and it seems it's the direction the industry is moving. It's still plenty supportive and the binding is definitely still a stiff binding. What the slightly softer torsional flex allows for is you can load into the highback and at the peak of your turn it snaps back and you pull through the apex with more energy. Other than that the binding is essentially the same as the last two years.
Overall impression: Still a really solid freeride or more aggressive all mountain binding with more liveliness. All the little features that matter and none of the ones that get in the way.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
